Foundations for advancing belonging (FAB): Diversity & Inclusion training certificate

Foundations for Advancing Belonging (FAB) is a four-part training series offered by Diversity & Inclusion, and is available to University faculty, staff and students at regularly scheduled intervals and by request. After completing all four trainings, participants will receive a training certificate of completion.

Participating in these trainings in the order they are listed is recommended, as the skills explored build on each other and are intended to progress the practitioner through three levels of engagement with diversity and inclusion:

  1.  Reflective Learning: continually reflecting upon and gaining awareness of how our thoughts and behaviors impact the inclusion of others from a variety of backgrounds and identities (key practice: ongoing reflection)
  2. Allyship: changing our daily actions and practices so as to be more inclusive of others from a variety of backgrounds and identities (key practice: intentional daily action)
  3. Advocacy: supporting and promoting the inclusion of others from a variety of backgrounds and identities through policies and group practices, working to amplify voices of diverse individuals (key practices: support and amplify)
